Life in Buenos Aires

Welcome and Orientation

Upon arrival you’ll take part in both the university and CISabroad orientation program. You’ll learn the “do’s and don’ts” of living in Argentina. Where to go out, how to stay safe, where to shop are just a few of questions that will be answered by our staff. During the first few days you can take the Buenos Aires Bus to check out the top twenty must-see points of the city. During orientation, we’ll also tell you all about our favorite places in town (restaurants, museums, markets etc). Oh, and you’ll join in on a welcome meal, something traditional and yummy (empanadas, anyone?) so that you can start to taste the local flavor.

Farewell and Re-entry Program

Though you’re not an astronaut returning from space, re-entering your home culture after being abroad can be shocking to the system. We’ll walk you through some of the things to expect, rehash your time abroad so that you can remember the highlights and, yep, we’ll feed you again as part of our farewell to Argentina.

Housing Options

Homestay

In the homestay, students will live with a local family as well as other international students. The number of people in the house or apartment varies depending on which homestay is assigned to the student, but all homestays include a private room, wifi access, 5 meals a week and access to the kitchen. The homestays are located 20-30 minutes from the University by public transportation. This is a great way to practice Spanish and experience Argentine culture, but also have other international students around.

Local Life

  • Explore the parks: Buenos Aires is full of beautiful parks. Whether you want a casual stroll or fast paced jog, they are a great place to check out.
  • Calle Defensa: This world class Sunday market has every kind of craft you can imagine. There you can enjoy the sound of local musicians, taste the delicious food and be entertained by the street performers.
  • Do the Tango: This traditional, passionate dance is what Argentina is known for! Strut your stuff alongside the locals at La Ideal or La Viruta.
  • Drink “Mate”: Mate is the Buenos Aires drink of choice. Our favorite way to enjoy it is at a cafe in the historical center with a churro or dulce de leche snack, perhaps at El Rosadal.

More About Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the second largest city in Latin America with 14 million people. Visitors call it the “Paris of the South” because it resembles a European city. Here, you'll find tree-lined streets, cafes on every corner, and fantastic shopping. You'll dance the tango and drink yerba mate in this cosmopolitan metropolis that never seems to sleep.

Porteños will love showing you their lifestyle and helping you learn Spanish in their unique accented speech. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, ask a new friend to bring you to the Superclásico. This is a fútbol match between local rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate. City-wide support is split between the two teams, which means fans get very passionate!  Buenos Aires’ fun, vibrant environment is full of activities. You can shop and stroll on Calle Florida or at Plaza Francia. Visit the free Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, the center of Argentine art. Relax or study in the postcard-perfect Plaza de Mayo or walk the cobblestone streets of San Telmo. Finally, you can fall in love with Palermo’s parks.

As a CISabroad summer or semester student in Buenos Aires, you'll be based in Belgrano. The largely residential neighborhood offers tree-lined avenues and tranquil parks. As a result, many upper-class Argentines and expatriates call this area home. Palermo, the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, sits between Belgrano and the official downtown area. Therefore, you'll have easy access to everything from sports stadiums to a planetarium, botanical gardens, and parks. Many of the areas within Palermo are considered to be trend setters in Argentinian fashion and art, so prepare to be wowed.

Program Excursions

The Intern in Argentina program has a number of possible excursions and each session, we will take students on one full day excursion. If you are interested in adding a second excursion we are happy to help you book one!

Student Feedback

CISabroad student study abroad semester program
The program in Argentina was exactly what I was looking for. I loved being surrounded by a foreign language. Now that I am back in the United States, I actively seek out opportunities to practice my second language.
